Meghan and Harry Will Be Replaced By Some Royals You’ve Never Heard Of

Out with the old, in with the...wait who are they?

GETTY

Granted, not everyone cares, but if you are fascinated with the Royal Family, and the recent drama of Megixt, you might be curious about what’s going to happen next. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle, announced they’re leaving their positions as Senior Members of the Royal Family. There was a lot of speculation and drama, several private conversations with grandma, the Queen. The family quickly sorted the details out, Meghan and Harry moved to Canada, and now it looks like their official Royal duties are being given to two Royals you likely have never heard of.

Royal biographer Robert Lacey said to Hello! Magazine that Prince Harry’s cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice will likely step into the two open positions as senior members. “If two go out, two have got to come in, and those two have got to be Beatrice and Eugenie. I’m sure they will step forward and be greatly welcomed.”

Daughters of Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York, we don’t tend to hear a whole lot about Beatrice or Eugenie. These two are the right age to be able to take on such a significant position within the family since Prince William’s children are still quite young. “It’s what the family needs as it’s another 15 years before Prince George’s generation steps up. It’s ironic that Harry mentioned his cousins as models of how he wants to be.”

There hasn’t been an official announcement from the Palace yet, but these two seem to have all the qualifications needed for the two open positions. There is also talk that Queen Elizabeth’s daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex, who’s married to Prince Edward, might be picking up some of the work slack, too.
